Perhaps inadvertently, this video highlights one of the weaker aspects of Damian Johnson's game. Regardless of what else he can do, Johnson is not a good shooter. This might be because he releases the ball when on his way down.

Damian Johnson

Johnson makes it onto the team largely on account of his five year career at the University of Minnesota. He is a 6'7 small forward an NBA calibre athlete, who unfortunately is dependent upon his athleticism. Johnson blocks shots and wins possessions by free-roaming defensively, and rebounds well for his height; however, in a half court offense, there's not a whole lot you can do with him.

Nevertheless, I hereby predict that Damian Johnson will perform more than respectably in Israel for his first professional season next year.
